Help me find that song, you know the one...

Can't find that song filter: There is a song that I've been looking for, from the mid 90's, something having to with bohemia.

It's a woman singing, and I could have sworn it was Bettie Serveert, but I have *ahem* acquired all of her albums from around that time, and didn't hear it. I can't remember much except that it was a mid tempo number, very ethereal...it was almost like the cocteau twins. The only part that really stuck out was the chorus, and that had something to do with "bohemia" being repeated a few times.

It was sometime around 94-95, probably closer to 95. I was living in Detroit at the time, and it could have quite possibly been a canadian artist.

Thanks in advance, if anyone can help...this has been driving me batty.

Could it be La Vie Boheme from Rent? Not the original recording, but covered by someone else.

I'm guessing The Dandy Warhols, Bohemian Like You.

Ok, so I didn't read the question properly. Or at all, really. I couldn't be wronger, actually.

Only thing I can think of that's vaguely close would be 'Oblivious' by Galaxie 500. Problem being that's off by six years and a gender.

Bettie Serveert is a band named after a TV show, by the way.

Could your memory have mixed up the band name with the song? My first thought was Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians doing "What I am"... But I think that the era is a bit off.

Mae Moore - Bohemia (1992)?

Excerpts from her site include the following:

...Released in Canada, the album spawned the hit single "I'll Watch Over You." From there, Mae left for Australia to record her follow-up album Bohemia (1992), the title track from which went on to Triple A and Modern Rock chart success in both Canada and the U.S.
